Stay Alive! 06/11/2017

B-Boy Moy © Little Shao/Red Bull Content Pool Together with B-Girl AT, FIN, B-Boy Moy, USA, is one of breaking's Athlete Role Models (ARM) at the Buenos Aires 2018 Youth Olympic Games. Last Saturday both were at the Red Bull BC One Finals in Amsterdam, NED. AT was one of the five judges making the calls, Moy was one of the 16 finalists battling for the 2017 title.

Moy lost the very first battle in a split decision (2:3) to B-Boy Alkolil, RUS. Others would probably give in to deception.

But he put it all into perspective immediately:

Taking the "L" and turning it into a Lesson. You're never too old or too young to keep learning and taking on the challenge. Unless I die or physically can't dance anymore, I'll work towards being on every major platform to represent for my family, fans, and sponsors. Thanks to all those who keep believing in me. I'm trying to stay alive! BREAK FREE all day, errday!


This week we will publish a more extensive interview with both ARMs. Stay tuned!
